Pop goes the Weasel!

So, my husband gets a phonecall yesterday afternoon from his boss saying that he was sorry that it was short notice, but there is something he really needed my hubby to do - what you might ask? Go to Cananda. For a week. Leaving on Sunday. Less than 48 hrs notice, and my husband is gone for a week. Gone. Sigh. Life is a sometimes just like a merry go round. Did I ever mention I get sick on merry go rounds?

So far we have Brownies, and two new projects cast on in the last 24 hours. I'm not stressed at all.


Wish me luck!

Sacrifice -

Today was one of those days that I was forced to look carefully at what I am comfortable doing, and what I am willing to do for anothers well being and happiness. What am I willing to sacrifice for anothers happiness? Be it my child's, my husband's, or my best friends, I have been forced to look and see that I am a creature of comfort. I do not often step beyond my bounds - I don't stretch, walk where the pavement is hot, or go without. In short, I have not sacrificed anything. And I find this to be a terrible fault. Certainly I am generous within my circle of comfort. I happily give of any thing I have to share, be it time, advice, food, and when I have it, even money. I have thought of myself as a giver, fancied myself an activist, dreamed of being truly great. Perhaps even an inspiration. But oh, how selfish I have been. It is time to step outside myself, and learn what it really means to give. All we are talking about is just a little discomfort - giving up just a little of what time is mine - and yet I am afraid. Stranger still, I am not even certain what I am afraid of.

Enough now. Each journey begins with just a single step.

Still here

Well, we're still in the hospital, and I am about to head in for the dayshift, and let Javier have some time off for a bit. Liam is in good spirits, but yesterday he was still having difficulty pulling in air - even though he is on continuous oxygen. He doesn't like that part. But the video games/tv in his room is cool. At least there is a little good with the bad. Brandon and Maia get to spend a little time with Nana and Papa today - so we can all relax just a little this morning. More as we know...

We are home! He did an amazing turnaround last night while I slept, and I walked into the children's wing to find him racing around the play room with a friend, hacking and wheezing, but off oxygen, and having a great time. He's holding oxygen levels finally, and we can all rest at home tonight. Yay!

Off to Hospital...

Liam is in the hospital today - Asthma... my poor boy can't breathe well enough to be at home. Hopefully we'll only need to be there a couple of days. Now, to pack my knitbag for today....
